The Armando's lobster retires to Dutchess County?

Has the neon lobster from Armando's in Brooklyn Heights retired to greener pastures in Dutchess County?
We did a double take during a recent visit to the postcard-perfect town of Millbrook, where an Armando's-style lobster holds court in the window of the Slammin' Salmon fish market.
The Slammin' Salmon lobster, left, rotated to reflect the way the Armando's lobster was positioned. The lobster in Millbrook is slightly different.
Apparently, there are more than a few of these lobsters still glowing around the country. One of somewhat different design can be found at the Lobster Pot in Provincetown.
But the one in Millbrook seems pretty similar to its lost cousin in Brooklyn Heights.
